Rent, food, child care, clothes – it’s never been more expensive to raise a family and just get by. Expanding Tax Credits, part of Biden’s COVID relief package, is something Community Change Action has been fighting for the last 2 decades, and now we’re pushing for it to be more inclusive and permanent.

Join us as we make people aware that their family may be eligible to receive up to $3,600 per child – and rally support to make this monumental expanded credit permanent. We must let Congress know that pandemic or not, working families still need help to make ends meet.

Now is the time to go bigger and bolder on income support, and to galvanize Washington insiders on what the movement already knows to be true—that direct cash support is the support that working families need to bounce back post-pandemic.
